Start the Music! 012 – Dominic Glynn (TV & Film Composer)



This episode of Start the Music! I get to geek out a little with Doctor Who composer Dominic Glynn. We talk about theme tunes, UK techno, and about being a musician spanning the bridge between analogue & digital. I also have the pleasure of playing one of his Doctor Who theme remixes that you will not want to miss. There’s music from a heavy metal super-group (do you like Black Sabbath?) and touching on the Canadian Maritimes with a track from Moncton, New Brunswick.

Start the Music! 011 – Peter Chiykowski (Rock, Paper, Cynic)



For those of you who like Jonathan Coulton, Weird Al and comedy songs, you’ll want to hear this… In this episode I talk to musician and cartoonist Peter Chiykowski, known on the interwebz as Rock, Paper, Cynic thus fulfilling my CanCon requirement at least twice over. We talk about Canadian comic conventions, the Weakerthans and John K Samson and how a comedy song is like an oil spill.* Credit to Peter for that metaphor.

This episode we’re going to bring some Southern California to your ears as I interview singer & bassist of the band Kut-U-Up on his way to grab some waves. Fun fact: This is the first interview I have ever done with someone in a wetsuit. We talk about the Pop Disaster Tour, quickly approaching the 15th anniversary of its last show (June 17, 2002) and the exploits of a band nobody knew accompanying two of the biggest pop punk bands of the time on tour.
